Crab Nachos worth the trip...

Crab nachos are not something that I would normally order but since we had heard a lot about them we did. They were amazing! The gumbo...not so much. Order the nachos, skip the soups.

Great concept with the game foods, but it's apparent the wait staff needs a complete overhaul. The bartender was pretentious, and once we sat no one bothered with us. We sat for 25 minutes, tried to get multiple waitresses attention without anyone slowing down. Didn't even get to try the food because we got up and left. I wasn't angry,... More

Lot of menu items you won't find elsewhere. Unusual foods (game meat). Fun place. You'll be amazed at some of the food choices.

We enjoy going to the Half Moon and always have a great meal. There are exotic game entrees and more common items as well. The bar area is also nice if you are waiting for your table.

I like the Moon to hang out a and have a few drinks with friends. Great selection of wine and beer and the service is outstanding. Atmosphere is appealing...menu is game oriented which I also like, however, the execution of the menu is poor. Taking a bowl of nachos and using elk as the meat then dumping a bunch of... More

We have heard so many good things about Half Moon, my wife and I decided to take my parents there for a late lunch before attending Longwood Gardens. Everything started off good but went downhill drastically. We ordered an appetizer and something from the children’s menu for my son to be served at the sometime. The appetizer came out but... More

This is a quiet restaurant/bar with a good-sized drink menu and great food. Several friends got together and had the crab nachos and a couple beers/drinks. The service was fast and reliable and the food was quite good.

I went to Half Moon solely for the beer selection, which did not disappoint. Any place that has Triple Karmeliet is great in my book. The food was a pleasant surprise - everything was really tasty (including the wild game sampler). The waitstaff were good, but service was a little slow. Management ended up giving us a free appetizer while... More

I've been to Half Moon many times over the years, but this was my first lunch-time visit. What a treat. My wife kept it simple -- quiche and a salad, which was a large piece of a well-prepared quiche. I had to choose one of the more exotic game items that Half Moon offers. It was tough to decide, but... More

The half moon we have been to many times. They have very good game dishes and the buffalo burger is one of them. It is a bit noisy and the menus up stairs is different than in the pub. I recommend the pub. They do have a wonderful local and international tap beer selection. If you like new dishes and... More
